About Me

  • Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

The best memories of my childhood were time spent in a VW camper traveling the US and Europe with my folks and siblings. Thanks for the reminder and may your kidlings have equally grand memories some day.


Oh, Lucy, your family will make so many lasting memories and camping will tie your family together in ways you'll never believe. We got our first camper, a 10 footer, when our oldest two children were 5 and 2 years old. Our campers have grown up with us as our children have grown. We now have a 32 footer and three grown children, but the "kids" still clear their schedules to go camping with us. We have survived floods and tornados during our camping adventures and have many, many happy memories of our family time together. I am so happy for your family.

absolutely love those interiors, can't wait to see what you do with the caravan!!


Congratulations! Y'all are going to have so much fun fixing the caravan up, and enjoying it to the fullest. I love how much crochet is featured in those pictures... now I have a new Flickr obsession to enjoy. Thanks! :-)

Oh my... Oh my, I am absolutely green with envy. You could do an entire blog on just your new caravan. The purchase, the dreams , the sketches, the refurbishing, the naming, the parties for it at different stages, the way it looks in the early morning just waiting for you, the trips...I could go on and on. ATTIC 24 + NEW CARAVAN = AWESOME ADVENTURE


Congratulation! I am sure that she will be so beautiful when you have given her your attic24 makeover :-)

Congratulations! So excited for you! I can't wait to see what creative and beautiful things you will do with it!


*grin* You sound so wonderfully excited! Can't wait to see how wonderful it looks when you're done.

Although as a word of caution for the small people - if it's the kind of one with fold-out bunk beds, don't hit the edge too hard while sleeping on it. Particularly not in the middle of the thunderstorm. I'm restless sleeper, managed to fold it up underneath me and terrified my mother half to death!


Congratulations on your new exciting purchase! I'm sure you will manage to turn it into something very 'you' - cosy, colourful and very very inviting.

Hope you have many nice trips and gather loads of pretty memories. I'm already jealous... (Been to Bolton Abbbey once and loved the place - hope to visit it again some time...)

Wow! We have a big family over here in Holland, Mum, dad, two boys and two girl of 10, 9, 7 and 5 years old. And a Beagle called Ruby and when I visited the Snailtrail website I was excited to see a lovely VW Camper called RUBY! Ruby is sooo cute! Our dream is to buy a VW camper and drive to numerous places with our family! Thank you for blogging this loveliness!


Your family will make some of their greatest memories cuddled up in the little caravan.

I know some of my children's fondest memories now 32 and 29 are of the camping jaunts we enjoyed while they were young. I remember my boy who must have been around 8 years old or so was talking in his sleep one night, gave a great big sigh and said "I'm just having the best time". And yes, he was sound asleep.

I can't wait to see what yours will look like once it has been Lucy-fied! It will be beautiful! Have lots of fun with it and in it!

How are the little people faring? Better, I hope?


ooooooooooooooh can't wait to see what you are going to do with it!( no doubt it's going to be some amazing stuff!) I hope you and yours will have many many memorable trips with it!


I love the look of your caravan. Lovely light with those big windows. Can't wait to see what you will do with her. We love vanning too. Can't decorate mine much though as it is a wind down camper. But, we have great fun in it for a few weeks each year. Would love one like yours though that I could "do up". Good luck with it. I love reading your blog. You've inspired a great many granny blankets in this neck of the woods. Sue, Victoria, Australia.

I beyond love this! I to dream a sunny little campers.


Looking forward to seeing what you do

OOOoooooo! happy camping- i never wanted one before-but.....


Congratulations!I never owned a caravan but ever since I was a kid I loved small houses,sheds,caravans and tents to customise and decorate myself. I wish Coast was sold here,unfortunately it has stopped. Ariadne from Greece!


Please do show us step by step how you go about the conversion...and then I can try and tackle ours!! Our caravan is a sad dark brown and orange mix, with peeling ceiling liner and almost no lighting. It is definitely up for a revamp! Have you seen Happy Loves Rosie's caravan? Its gorgeous too. Thanks for sharing the book. Gill.

Congrats on the caravan!I'm sooooo jealous.We had one for a few years and I had plans but unfortunately no dosh to make her jaunty and pretty as planned.We've mourned her sale ever since but hey-ho.I'm sure you'll have lots of fun-we did.And funny you should mention Snailtrail.I was on their site the other day as my fiancible and I have finally decided to get married and planning to hire a campervan for honeymooning!A happy,colourful one to travel to the Dales in.So keep an eye out in Skipton in the months to come.By the way-can I be cheeky Lucy and use your blog to ask if anyone's seen any websites with ideas for a small,jaunty,jolly wedding I'd be very grateful.
